Ammo Prices: 12/19/2014

    Week 37.

    Next week will be the 3rd quarter summary. I have hopes that Santa has corrected the .22LR supply/demand imbalance. The past week I have seen .22LR at several local retailers (and there were not hordes of ammo scavs grabbing it as soon as it hit the shelves). Low gas prices, and available .22LR? Holiday miracle I say…

    Tom is a former Navy Corpsman that spent some time bumbling around the deserts of Iraq with a Marine Recon unit, kicking in tent flaps and harassing sheep. Prior to that he was a paramedic somewhere in DFW, also doing some Executive Protection work between shifts. Now that those exciting days are behind him, he teaches wilderness medicine and writes for a number of publications, including The Prepared, a site devoted to self-preparedness. He hopes that his posts will help you find solid gear that will survive whatever you can throw at it–he is known (in certain circles) for his curse…ahem, ability…to find the breaking point of anything.
